New Pump Track for Lithgow

Grant funding will be used to construct a bike pump track at Endeavour Park Lithgow
Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson has welcomed an announcement by Member for Bathurst Paul Toole of $522,353 grant funding to construct a bike pump track at Endeavour Park Lithgow.

“This is great news for Lithgow, especially for our young people and further enhances Endeavour Park as a destination for local people and visitors to Lithgow,” said Mayor Thompson.

A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden by riders "pumping" - generating momentum by up and down body movements, instead of pedalling or pushing. Pump tracks are a worldwide phenomenon although only recently arriving in Australia. 

Pump tracks can be ridden by cyclists of all ages and skill levels and you don’t need a special kind of bicycle to ride on a pump track.

Unlike many informal tracks, this pump track will have an asphalt overlay to provide the best all year round riding experience for all ages and all abilities.

The track will be moulded into the natural Endeavour Park slope near the newly constructed Adventure Playground. 

“The funding for the pump track comes from Round 3 of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF) and with a contribution by Council,” continued the Mayor. “I would especially like to thank our Local member Paul Toole for his assistance in securing the grant.” 

The next stage will be to finalise design work in conjunction with local young people after which construction can commence either in late 2020 or early 2021.
